Care for the elderly in Northumberland.

One unique way of helping Charlotte Straker is to consider leaving a legacy to the Trust in your Will. Great benefit can be gained by present and future residents and patients by such a generous gift.

How can I leave a Legacy to Charlotte Straker Project?

There are three different ways you could leave us a special gift in your Will…

  1. Leave us a percentage of your estate, after you have specified your wishes for your loved ones (This is known as a residuary legacy)
  2. Leave us a fixed sum of money (This is known as a pecuniary legacy)
  3. Leave us a specific gift or object, such as property, stocks and shares or personal items such as jewelry (This is known as a specific legacy)

If you would like to help us in this way, the best thing to do is make an appointment with a solicitor, who will talk you through the options and amend or write your Will accordingly.

Your Questions Answered

How would my gift to Charlotte Straker Project be used?

All legacies, big or small, are used to help us to improve our residents and patient’s quality of life by furthering the aims of the charity in providing care and improving facilities. We are extremely grateful for whatever amount you can give.

Legacies funded 2/3 of the cost of the 2013 building upgrade. These gifts therefore made this important work possible.

Will my legacy be subject to inheritance tax?

No. Gifts left to charity in Wills are exempt from inheritance tax, so you can be sure that the charity will receive every penny of what you kindly leave to us.
